A: fair resistance; exposure (30 days) to the chemical does not cause any damage;
B: sufficient resistance; exposure causes damage of poor importance, which sometimes is only temporary;
C: poor resistance; exposure to chemical is not allowed or causes immediate permanent damage.

Results of testing with referenced materials have to be considered as indication: in case of specific use it is recommended to carry out preliminary testing.
